Rocester are a club with a long and rich history. The first recorded reference to football in Rocester was on Saturday 16th 1876 meaning they supersede Coleshill, who claim to be one of the oldest clubs in the country, by 9 years.

The Romans were founder members of the Midland Alliance and have twice won the league to gain promotion to the Southern League and the Northern Premier respectively. They were relegated back to the Alliance for the 2005/06 season and since then they have finished bottom, 12th, 5th, 20th, 16th, 14th and last season a very creditable 6th.

This season “The Romans” currently lie in 9th place with 5 wins, 5 draws and just 3 defeats.

They are sponsored by and closely associated with the JCB factory that dominates the town of Rocester.

Rocester and Coleshill had never met before coming together in the Alliance four seasons ago and the eight meetings since have left the clubs level. Coleshill enjoyed the best of it when the two sides first met but three wins in a row have hauled Rocester back. Last season they did the double over us without conceding a goal. Interestingly there has never been a draw and of Coleshill’s 4 wins only one has come at home.
